It was hard work occupying the grand baby. When Mozzie got our precious little bundle to sleep he made sure she stayed there.

Our beloved Theo has “crossed the bar.”
The period of our sadness and grief pales in comparison with the many years of happiness and companionship which we have enjoyed. He was a regal representative of his species.
Theo was a friendly dog, greeting everyone with affection and receiving an abundance in return. On one occasion he attempted to leave with the FedEx delivery man! He loved attention, often demanding it with a gentle paw-push or a nose-nudge. Social gatherings included his working the room after which he usually found a place to relax and recuperate.
In accordance with his gentle nature, he left us with neither a whine nor wimpier – a class act.
Science tells us that dogs have 25% of identical human DNA – we suspect that his share was much more than that.
Theo will be cremated with one of his favourite “woollies” and a granite marker will be procured for him to join the gallery of our three other standard poodles. They will have excellent company.
We acknowledge loving caregivers, Dr. Lois Fiander and her assistant, Holly, his faithful groomer, “auntie” Gwen Lohnes, dog sitters, Steve and Joyce Nickerson, Agnes Moase and his breeder Kathryn Diefenbach.
In tribute to Theo:
Crossing the Bar
by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.

Eli has proven to be an absolutely delightful addition to our family. He is very intelligent, affectionate, and wonderful with all other living things (with the possible exception of deer flies). He still has a bit of puppy in him at three years.
We are overjoyed with this dog and could not be happier with our choice – an unmitigated testament to your hard work.

Beau has been celebrating his second birthday today. We feel so lucky to have him in our lives.

Four fhf poodles in St. John’s get together at the holidays, as they often do throughout the year, to wish all their kindred poos a Merry Christmas.
Our beautiful boy turns eight years old on October 10th. He was born on Thanksgiving in 2011. Just last weekend we saw his litter mates Kayah and Gordon whom we usually meet a couple of times a year.
Dawn & Brian and Marley
Our Nelson celebrated his second birthday in June. We love him so much!
Everyday that we have him in our lives is a blessing. He is such a loving and fine boy. A great companion for us, very gentle and protective of the grandchildren and just all around excellent family member. Goes pretty much wherever we go, he does not like to be left behind at home.
Steve and Johanna
Beau is sweet, agreeable and gentle with both children and adults. He interacts well with other dogs and with his “brothers” – Ben, the guinea pig, and Ginger, a stray cat who was near death that we couldn’t turn away. Beau loves playing soccer, walking and running but hates getting up in the morning – he’d rather sleep in! He has the sweetest temperament, is loved by all who meet him, and receives many compliments on our walks.
We cannot imagine a dog better suited to our lifestyle. I appreciate the advice you have given us and your expertise in matching pups with people. Our lives have been greatly enriched by having Beau in our family.

Polly is a wonderful companion. At five years she can still outrun/play any other dog of any breed or age that we have met. Many people comment on her agility, speed and energy.
